Twelve recent choral works have been selected by the FS students for reading at the session. Various voicings of secular and sacred pieces are represented, including mixed, men's and women's choirs. The music has been provided by J.W. Pepper & Son Inc. and coordinated by Pepper of Valley Forge. Pepper tote bags and catalogs will be available in limited quantities, along with the packet of music for 25 people in attendance.
